The Rolex Milgauss, introduced in 1956, was initially designed for professionals working in environments with high magnetic fields. Its name combines “mille” (meaning thousand) and “gauss” (a unit for measuring magnetic fields), emphasizing its ability to resist magnetic interference up to 1,000 gauss. The Milgauss featured a unique lightning bolt-shaped orange secondhand and green sapphire crystal, setting it apart aesthetically. After a brief discontinuation in the 1980s, Rolex reintroduced the Milgauss in 2007 with a new design that retained its antimagnetic properties while showcasing a more modern and streamlined appearance. Today, the Milgauss continues to be a favorite among watch enthusiasts, combining Rolex’s renowned precision with distinctive style.
